Abstract:This chapter presents the development of Indonesian higher education since its origins to current
challenges in the fields of governance, autonomy, access, equity, quality, and
internationalization. Indonesia has a massive and diversified tertiary education, including
experiments in community colleges and online programs. The higher educational system remains
mainly centralized, with the exception of some reforms towards financial autonomy. Insufficient
public funding hinders the capacity to provide adequate teaching, research, and facilities among
other aspects. The consequential rise in student fees contributes to an overrepresentation of
students from Java, urban centers, and higher social classes.
